This event raises money for the FMANM scholarships benefiting students pursuing the mechanical trades at both the University of New Mexico and Central New Mexico Community College.   Form your own complete foursome to compete in the “championship” division or register for the “individual” format where FMANM will pair you as an ABCD player so all comers can enjoy the game.

Executive Director Column


With already over 100 golfers signed in for the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico Golf Tournament and Scholarship Fundraiser, please email me today.  Let me know you will be on hand bright and early (7 am) on Friday morning, July 22th, at the Isleta Eagle Golf Course to help me register players, log door prizes, and perform other duties as assigned so that this event will sail smoothly through.  Even if you do not play, your help is appreciated and necessary.

I still need door prize donations that make the event special.  You and your company will receive notice in the newsletter and online for your generosity.  If you have something to throw into the mix—golf-related sporting equipment, dinners for two, small tools, gift certificates, company logo-ed promotional products, etc.—please bring them with you to the golf course on the 22th (plastered with your business cards), or call me and I will arrange pick up.

The Facility Manager Association of New Mexico needs its supporters to be generous and help make this event one for the record books.  If you have not signed up to participate, it is not too late.  Email me at carolee@fmanm.com (preferred) or call me at 505-377-5309 and let me know you are supporting us again this year!

Baseball Was a Blast
See you Next Year!

All the tickets for the annual Albuquerque Isotopes baseball outing sold out in a matter of days.  Although the home team lost, the folks who make the time each year to attend this relaxing event always win. 
We know how to have fun.  See you next time!

CNM Foundation letter of appreciation




Welcome Our New Board Members!

Mary Archuleta with Relevant Solutions has been involved in HVAC and building controls for 25 years and has experienced everything from the demanding Sandia Laboratories contracts to the world-wide reach of Johnson Controls.   In her own words, "I love the importance of the mission that the Facility Manager Association promotes, helping students with technical scholarships join our community.  Just being a part of this team that brings this to our community through education and also the fun activities that FMA supports---golf, baseball, the October trade show—is an amazing opportunity for me.  I hope to be able to introduce many of my customers to this exciting group and look forward to contributing to this team which has already accomplished so much good!  

Kellie Gleaton with StaffingSolutions/ResourceMFG  is a 2013 graduate of the University of New Mexico.  She has volunteered at the FMA golf tournament for the last 5 years and has assisted at the annual FAB O&M Show for as long.  She is as a staff performance manager for her company and works onsite for one of the Albuquerque's biggest manufacturing clients where she over sees recruitment, onboarding, payroll and employee relations for contract employees.  "I look forward to encouraging other facility managers to take advantage of membership in FMA for their own professional development, as well for the opportunity along the way to help add money to the scholarships at UNM and CNM which are so very important."

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to janine.kraemer@state.nm.us  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at thomas.plummer@ihs.gov
